Jason and I made our way to Enderun on a very dreary Saturday morning, but I could see only sunshine on the faces of the students waiting for classes to start at the lounge area. We weren’t late this time around, thankfully. It was the last session of the Ducasse Signature Series ‘Into to French Cuisine’ 5-Day Bootcamp, and to be honest, it felt bittersweet.
I have never cooked French food before. Yes I’ve made some French desserts like soufflés and macarons, but I’ve never touched upon French cooking. It just feels incredibly intimidating for some reason. I feel like I would’ve stayed within this mindset for a long time had Enderun Colleges not invited me to attend one of their ‘Introduction to French Cuisine’ classes. This class is under their Ducasse Signature Series, and it teaches bits and pieces of the techniques and recipes that have turned Alain Ducasse himself into a Michelin-decorated chef.
